From Friday, June 14 to Monday, June 17, the third edition of the Adire Lagos Experience will take place at the Ecobank Pan African Centre (EPAC) in Lagos.

The exhibition will feature authentic Adire fabric displays from over 100 diverse merchants, indigenous cuisine, and African entertainment.

The Head of Consumer Banking at Ecobank, Mrs Adeola Ogunyemi, stated that there would be a series of masterclasses, as well as networking opportunities with entrepreneurs, shoppers, and everyone in the business of making or trading in Adire.

She reiterated that the exhibition aligns perfectly with Ecobank’s commitment as a Pan-African Institution to offer experiences that go beyond banking and also dedicated to creating enriching experiences that resonate with its customers’ lifestyles while celebrating the diversity of our nation’s culture.

“We are encouraged by the success of the previous editions of the Adire Lagos Experience and we plan to make this year’s edition bigger and better.

“The exhibition is in line with our brand promise as a pan-African financial institution to promote culture and boost tourism on the continent.

“We have this opportunity to play a notable part in contributing to boosting Nigeria’s tourism, culture and creative industry using Adire as a key driver.

“High-profile exhibitors, vendors, expatriates, influencers and dignitaries from different parts of the world and from all walks of life have indicated interest to be part of the event. I am therefore inviting Nigerians, diasporans resident in Nigeria and the diplomatic corps to attend the four-day event,” she stated.

“We are providing a cosy ambience with utmost serenity to make participants feel comfortable and safe. Participation is free, and everyone is welcome to invite family and friends to come over to witness the beautiful event.

“This Exhibition also presents an opportunity not only to sell and buy products but to experience the luxuriance in our culture,” she added.

Ecobank Nigeria, a key driver of tourism, culture and the creative industries in Nigeria, recently hosted the +234Art, a 10-day art fair dedicated to nurturing and uplifting the burgeoning art industry in Nigeria.
